Visual Arts Submissions

Currently Closed


To celebrate NOGO Arts' premiere event, we are accepting submissions from visual artists whose work supports the theme of transvisibility. We are particularly interested in presenting digital work from trans* artists and allies. The digital gallery will be presented via NOGO Arts' website, so we encourage submitted art work to take advantage of our culture's  fascination with screens, ear buds, and mobile devices.  




  • Provide up to five different images/pieces
  • Images can be in .jpg, .gif, or .png only
  • Images need to be saved in RGB color mode
  • Resolution limit of 60 megapixels
  • File sizes should be kept small, preferably under 500 KB
  • Video submissions must be housed on a streaming site
  • Selected videos will be embedded on NOGO Arts' site
  • We can support video's from YouTube, Vimeo, Animoto, and Wistia

Who looks at your work?

NOGO Arts brings together advisory panels for each of its calls to ensure that work is being evaluated by knowledgeable and appropriate individuals from the field.

To support our goal of expanding community and conversation, we also invite an ‘outside’ voice, someone who is not affiliated with the field, to join the advisory panel.

All submissions will be viewed in a timely manner, and all artists will receive notification within two weeks of the deadline with comments from the panel. 

Submission Fee

NOGO Arts charges  a non-refundable $20 fee for each portfolio submission.  We do not charge further fees. Submissions cannot be considered without this fee. Click below to begin the submission process. 



Your submission fee helps to cover hosting costs and design for the digital exhibition. This is a curated exhibition. Each accepted artist will receive an artist's page where you can link to your own sites and storefronts. 

Critical generosity

Critical generosity is what it sounds like. In evaluating work, NOGO Arts commits itself to encountering work on its terms. That means that we will strive to let work speak for itself rather than assuming it speaks to us and our immediate aesthetic and editorial expectations.
